Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): During the spacewalk scene where Capa, Mace and Harvey are trying to get back aboard the Icarus-1 from Icarus-2, they float across into the airlock. The shot cuts to the airlock control panel, which indicates "EQUALISE", whereupon Capa and Mace immediately crash to the floor of the airlock as it's repressurized. This wouldn't happen; gravity operates whether there's an atmosphere or a vacuum, and once they were inside the Icarus-1's gravitational field (however it works), they'd have literally "fallen" to the floor immediately.
  • Cliff Curtis had to leave filming early for personal reasons, so several shots of him (such as entering the bomb compartment) had to be provided by a double wearing dark glasses and a baseball cap. These were deleted when that part of the "test-firing" scene was given to Rose Byrne's character. You can view his double's work on the deleted scenes included on the DVD.
  • Dr Brian Cox, CERN / Manchester University, acted as the film's science advisor. His wife was involved in production of the movie's blog.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the scene where four crewmen are forced to go into outer space, with no protection, Corazon states that the temperature outside is -273 degrees Celsius. This is not true, because though outer space is near absolute zero (-273 degrees Celsius, 0 Kelvin) it is in fact never colder than about 3 K (from the cosmic microwave background), and in galaxies it is warmer (with radiation temperatures greater than about 10 K). (The interplanetary medium in our solar system has an electron temperature of about 100,000 K, but is so diffuse that this is not the relevant temperature to use.)
